  Essential German Grammar - Learning German - German Corner
This is the first German grammar which has been specifically designed for the adult with limited learning time who wishes to be able to express himself with reasonable accuracy, yet does not wish to be burdened with archaic, highly literary, or seldom used forms.
It covers the most important points of German grammar in the clearest possible manner, stressing regularities rather than, irregularities and concentrating upon the constructions and expression modes that you would be most likely to use.
Among other unusual features of this grammar are: a means of avoiding most of the intricacies of noun declension; a logical, easily followed presentation of verbs compounded with separable or inseparable prefixes; a statement on word order that enables you to see English parallels; and an immediately useful presentation of basic German grammar.

A few days later, another presentation of grammar was presented, this time using communicative methods, and was, as before, followed by a quiz.
Over 80% of the students said they enjoyed when the instructor presented grammar in English, in contrast to the just over 35% who either greatly or fairly well enjoyed when the instructor presented grammar in German.
